DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Office of the Secretary 7 CFR Part 9 [Docket ID: FSA–2020–0004] RIN 0530–AA65 Coronavirus Food Assistance Program; Correction Office of the Secretary, USDA. Correcting amendments. AGENCY: ACTION: The Secretary of Agriculture is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal Register on May 21, 2020. The document was issued to implement the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) that provides assistance to agricultural producers impacted by the effects of the COVID–19 outbreak. There is one typo in the table of payment rates for the commodity of carrots that needs to be corrected. Additional corrections are being made to add clarity to the rule. DATES: Effective Date: June 12, 2020. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William L. Beam; telephone: (202) 720– 3175; email: Bill.Beam@usda.gov. Persons with disabilities who require alternative means for communication should contact the USDA Target Center at (202) 720–2600 (voice). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document corrects the final rule that was published in the Federal Register on May 21, 2020 (85 FR 30825–30835). This document clarifies the definition of ‘‘Slaughter Cattle—fed cattle’’ to specify that the term refers to cattle with a weight of 1,200 pounds or more that are intended for slaughter. This document clarifies specialty crop eligibility in § 9.5(b), and specifies that specialty crops that were harvested and shipped but that were subsequently spoiled or unpaid due to loss of marketing channels between January 15, 2020, and April 15, 2020, are eligible for payment under § 9.5(b)(2). It corrects jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:57 Jun 11, 2020 Jkt 250001 § 9.5(b)(3) to specify that it includes donated crops and to remove the term ‘‘unpriced,’’ which does not apply to payments for specialty crops that did not leave the farm or were donated, or mature crops that remained unharvested between January 15, 2020, and April 15, 2020, due to loss of marketing channels. This document clarifies payment calculations for livestock under § 9.5(c)(1), (d)(1), and (f)(1) to specify that they are based on unpriced livestock sales, and it clarifies § 9.5(c)(2), (d)(2), and (f)(2) to specify that they apply to livestock inventory owned between April 16, 2020, and May 14, 2020. This document removes the definition of ‘‘unpriced inventory’’ and adds a similar definition of ‘‘unpriced’’ to be consistent with the use of the term throughout the regulation; the new definition also specifies that ‘‘unpriced’’ is based on whether a forward contract, agreement, or similar binding document was in place as of January 15, 2020. The final rule did not address eligibility of dairy operations that went out of business prior to the second quarter or during second quarter production. This correction specifies that dairy operations that dissolved on or before March 31, 2020, are eligible for payment under § 9.5(e)(1) using the CARES Act payment rate, and dairy operations that dissolve or have dissolved after March 31, 2020, are eligible for a prorated payment for the number of days the dairy operation commercially markets milk in the second quarter under § 9.5(e)(2) using the CCC payment rate. This clarification will not increase CFAP costs. This document also corrects the CARES Act payment rate for sales losses for carrots, and table headings. List of Subjects in 7 CFR Part 9 Agricultural commodities, Agriculture, Disaster assistance, Indemnity payments. Accordingly, 7 CFR part 9 is corrected by making the following correcting amendments: PART 9—CORONAVIRUS FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAM 1.

Coronavirus Food Assistance Program; Correction

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, USDA.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Secretary of Agriculture is correcting a final rule that 
appeared in the Federal Register on May 21, 2020. The document was 
issued to implement the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) that 
provides assistance to agricultural producers impacted by the effects 
of the COVID-19 outbreak. There is one typo in the table of payment 
rates for the commodity of carrots that needs to be corrected. 
Additional corrections are being made to add clarity to the rule.

DATES: Effective Date: June 12, 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William L. Beam; telephone: (202) 720-
3175; email: [email protected]. Persons with disabilities who require 
alternative means for communication should contact the USDA Target 
Center at (202) 720-2600 (voice).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document corrects the final rule that 
was published in the Federal Register on May 21, 2020 (85 FR 30825-
30835). This document clarifies the definition of ``Slaughter Cattle--
fed cattle'' to specify that the term refers to cattle with a weight of 
1,200 pounds or more that are intended for slaughter.
    This document clarifies specialty crop eligibility in Sec.  9.5(b), 
and specifies that specialty crops that were harvested and shipped but 
that were subsequently spoiled or unpaid due to loss of marketing 
channels between January 15, 2020, and April 15, 2020, are eligible for 
payment under Sec.  9.5(b)(2). It corrects Sec.  9.5(b)(3) to specify 
that it includes donated crops and to remove the term ``unpriced,'' 
which does not apply to payments for specialty crops that did not leave 
the farm or were donated, or mature crops that remained unharvested 
between January 15, 2020, and April 15, 2020, due to loss of marketing 
channels. This document clarifies payment calculations for livestock 
under Sec.  9.5(c)(1), (d)(1), and (f)(1) to specify that they are 
based on unpriced livestock sales, and it clarifies Sec.  9.5(c)(2), 
(d)(2), and (f)(2) to specify that they apply to livestock inventory 
owned between April 16, 2020, and May 14, 2020. This document removes 
the definition of ``unpriced inventory'' and adds a similar definition 
of ``unpriced'' to be consistent with the use of the term throughout 
the regulation; the new definition also specifies that ``unpriced'' is 
based on whether a forward contract, agreement, or similar binding 
document was in place as of January 15, 2020.
    The final rule did not address eligibility of dairy operations that 
went out of business prior to the second quarter or during second 
quarter production. This correction specifies that dairy operations 
that dissolved on or before March 31, 2020, are eligible for payment 
under Sec.  9.5(e)(1) using the CARES Act payment rate, and dairy 
operations that dissolve or have dissolved after March 31, 2020, are 
eligible for a prorated payment for the number of days the dairy 
operation commercially markets milk in the second quarter under Sec.  
9.5(e)(2) using the CCC payment rate. This clarification will not 
increase CFAP costs.
    This document also corrects the CARES Act payment rate for sales 
losses for carrots, and table headings.

that may be sold after April 15, 2020, are not eligible. Specialty
